Conduct Policy for officers of the European Society of Radiology 

Conduct Policy for officers of the European Society of Radiology 

The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is an apolitical, non-profit organisation, dedicated to promoting and coordinating the scientific, philanthropic, intellectual and professional activities of Radiology in all European countries. The Society’s mission at all times is to serve the health care needs of the general public through the support of science, teaching and research and the quality of service in the field of radiology.

The integrity of its officers is essential to achieve this mission. It is critical to the integrity of the ESR that those serving in elected or appointed positions avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest. All decisions and actions must be made solely to the benefit of the ESR, without regard to personal considerations.

In order to comply with these principles, all ESR officers are asked to complete a disclosure declaration form, following the ESR’s requirement to disclose any possible conflict between their duties towards the ESR and their private interests.

Declaration forms will be updated annually. When encountering potential conflicts of interest, ESR officers must identify the potential conflict and, when required, remove themselves from all discussion and voting on the matter.

The ESR may disqualify any individual from their activities within the ESR if a conflict of interest is not disclosed or cannot be resolved.
